The problem is that the current fixed
composition is suitable only for a specific font (usually a
fixed-width terminal font).  Even on Windows, I think
there's a way to use BDF fonts distributed as intlfonts.  If
you use those fonts on Windows, the rendering should be

I installed intlfonts 1.2.1 using the procedure given at http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/faq5.html , save that I updated the directory names to those actually present, thus names ending in '.X', not '-X'. When I selected the 16-point BDF fonts for Emacs 22.1, the Lao came out nicely except that the tone marks were not treated as combining marks. Unfortunately, with Emacs (+ bug fixes Jason Rumney mentioned earlier), I just got square boxes for the BDF fonts. Do I need to define the fontset specially to allow it use a Lao-encoded font for Lao characters? I tried

(set-fontset-font "fontset-bdf" 'lao '("-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-m-80-MuleLao-1" . "MuleLao-1"))

and several variations, but to no apparent avail.
